10K at 30 Degrees

If the early morning hours weren't enough ... and if 30° temperatures weren't enough ... or the snow flurries ... then maybe it was the wind that made Cody's first 10K run a memorable one. After running in the Kansas City 5K last month, he had to find another race to run in before winter set in. That's how the Pilgrim Pacer Run at Shawnee Mission Park found it's way on to the family calendar. As part of a fund-raiser for Harvesters, Paige filled up a sack of groceries to contribute to the cause. But it was Cody that packed on the layers of clothing and ran his way to the finish line, coming in 130 of 210 (male) racers. Combined with 300 some-odd lady racers, there was hot chocolate, cobbler, and good times for everyone.
